Leeds-born Sky Sports presenter and Champion of Walking for Parkinson’s UK, Dave Clark, who is fighting Parkinson’s, said: “In 2016, my resolution was to complete my own 200-mile coast to coast walk for Parkinson’s UK. It was tough but the feeling when I crossed the finish line was fantastic. This year, our resolution is to make it the biggest series yet for Walk for Parkinson’s.”
